That is the one! Mark 2 says short shaft so I think that answers it. Thank you so much! It has the red floorboards which are a Zodiac 'composite' apart from the from the front two which are ply painted red.

Hold on a moment, I'll scan a copy of the brochure I have.

I have a 1991 brochure. It doesn't say what shaft length, but I would say judging by the cut-out in the top of the transom that its a short shaft.
It also says Max. HP 50, Recommended HP 40. I wouldn't use anything smaller than 25 HP if I were you.
And I agree with Richard: Move it out from the transom one or two holes.

It'd probably plane with a 9.9/15hp!

The "Sport" model had oversized speedtubes on it too...

I miss the Futura Junior 320. 28 mph w/ 9.9hp.

According to the 1991 brochure, a Futura Sport will do 50 mph with a 50 HP motor, and a Futura Junior will do 30 mph with a 9.9.
